"Reality tells us there are no guarantees. Except that some day Jon Lester will be on that list of 100-game winners." - Peter Gammons
I know Ted Lilly and Chad Billingsley are coming off injuries, but they should be ready to start the year and so how many starters do the Dodgers need?
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
I know Greinke can be nasty in any given game, but there is just something there that is hard to put your finger on that makes me glad to see the Dodgers get their next Kevin Brown. I think this will be one of those running joke contracts, in an Albert Belle sort of way.

That said, having Cueto's first 2 years of FA for $10M/yr is looking like an absolute steal -- comparable pitchers are going to be making nearly 3 times that!
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
